Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 152902
CAN-2005-0086 less buffer overflow
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:06 EDT
Victor Ashik discovered a heap based buffer overflow in less, caused by a
patch added to the less package in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3. An attacker
could construct a carefully crafted file that could cause less to crash or
possibly execute arbitrary code when opened. The Common Vulnerabilities
and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2005-0086
to this issue.
This issue may be RHEL3 specific. Must be checked.
